barack obama and mitt romney, and you were tearing me off a new one, i believe is the american phrase, for what you perceive to be my lack of support for the president. >> that's right. >> i was more interested in the debate. it was a good one actually. i found it very informative. >> i kept sending you articles. >> you did. and your man won. >> your man didn't? >> no, i don't have a horse in the race. i'm british. i can't vote. my argument to you is i wondered whether mitt romney could be better for the american economy, given his background. >> god, no. do you know why? >> you were having none of it. >> do you know why? there have been businessmen who have turned presidents. herbert hoover, george bush, the first george bush. businessmen, i think shall there were a couple of others. lousy presidents. businessmen make lousy presidents. >> why have you been so consistent in your support of obama? is >> i can't even imagine thinking about what would happen to the supreme court if a republican were the president. i mean, citizens united is a horrible thing that people can spend and wast
himself and his reputation a lot of damage as the vice presidential nominee running with mitt romney. he had this rnc speech that was basically packed with lies. he got on the debate stage with joe biden and i think biden definitely got the better of him. i think even republicans who maybe didn't see biden wiping the floor with him quite the way that i did, felt a little dispoupted. they have little respect for joe biden's intellect, they thought paul ryan would come in and wipe the floor with him. that definitely didn't happen. interestingly, paul ryan has been largely absent. i mean, really, almost completely absent and silent during the fiscal cliff negotiations. so what do you think we're going to see out of him in 2013? >> certainly he's not where he wanted to be, which is working out of the white house, but, you know, i think he has been -- you're right he hasn't been maybe very vocal in terms of making press statements but he's somebody speaker john boehner looked it, when you're in the capitol, he's in huddles with other lawmakers and they definitely still respect. the idea that
romney, they would say charles manson. because it's a little swastika on my for a, i will lose weight. it would be a great role and i will win an oscar. hollywood has a hard time pointing out the good in things. pop music, our member growing up, there's our stories about rock stars crashing hotel rooms. and how cool it was and how rebellious it was to destroy things. but somebody had to clean that up, and he was always a made. i wonder if these rock stars who are liberal and left wing ever thinks about the little guy who has to clean up the stupid masses for the stuff have to do with when they are od'ing are getting hired or wasted and breaking things. if they can pretend to be a rebel when, in fact, they are hurting the regular guy there championing. i used to be -- [applause] they just be a time when, like being a celebrity was supposed to be edgy. you were supposed to speak truth to power. but now they french kiss. look at jon stewart. he did a whole rally making fun of the tea party. speak to power to people who are "speaking truth to power." it was the tea party who were the rebe
it was the 47% video. when that emerged i think that really was what sort of kals tied the image of mitt romney that the president's ads had been maintaining for months and hard with the poor debate performance from obama at first to come back from. >> in 1984 i knew mondale was going to lose when he gave his acceptance speech and said the next president has to raise taxes. he won't tell you, i just did. this year i believe i knew that mitt romney was going to lose when he said, i will veto the d.r.e.a.m. act if it gets to my deck. when he said that in republican debate i knew he couldn't get to 30% among latinos and he was done. >> it sounds like an obvious answer but president obama's re-election will be seen by history by -- i think the way that he won, the way that he won so decisively, so clearly and with an electorate whose composition surprised the heck out of the republicans will make his second term seen as -- he can no longer be seen as sort of a flukey creation of the wars and the bush economy. he's actually -- >> i'll do a variation of that. election night, the amazing moment when f
, is a negative campaign in 2012. negative campaigning has been to attack, attack and attack mitt romney for being capital, for being a plutocrat, for being rich, for being out of touch. all these things that they are accusing rightly or wrongly, mitt romney for. so it's a very negative campaign and a very unusual one for david axelrod to run on. >> you right, edward kline, that what isn't terribly true about our president is that the net -- most successfusuccessfu l ones grow in office. can the same be said of barack obama? has he learned from his mistakes? the answer to these questions will strike many of the readers of this book all to clear and i can hear them chanting in unison, no, no, no. >> look at john f. kennedy who came to the oval office unprepared to be president and made any mistakes in the first year or more, including the bay of pigs and other mistakes that he made. it is now generally conceded that kennedy by the time he was assassinated had grown in office considerably and understood how to deal with the military, how to deal with congress, how to deal with conflicting advisers a
got 50.96% of the population. >> he got over 300 electoral votes. romney only have one battleground state. tons of senate victories, again in the house, there were gains. voters agree with the handling of the economy presently and the proposals that the president has a point. it has to the one spending cuts and republicans try to pass a plan of their own, but it failed. bill kristol has criticized the plan. those are not my words, republicans have criticized that now republicans are really standing in the way of the real deal in order to defend the very top. >> republicans have a mandate as well. they were elected in the majority in the house of representatives, and their mandate is to maintain a grip on the size of government. instead of letting the president and the democrats go towards greed and bankruptcy and insolvency. they have a mandate. if they go along with raising taxes on the job creators in america, they can plan to be wiped out in the midterm election. they know that. they know the mandate is. if we can keep looking at the schools, the 50% approval rating of the presid
your head? >> you've got to keep talking, paula. i didn't fall for nothing. >>> coming up, mitt romney -- >> those are my dirty socks. >> stinky. >> they're excited to see me. >> who wouldn't me. i'm excited. >> we have so much fun here, don't we? >> absolutely. >> this is what they've been warning us about. this is it. we've got to go. it's been fun. this is it. i've got to cancel my appointment with hotstuff69. i'm not going to make it, baby girl, i'm not going to make it. >> that's awesome. you guys are good, man. >> oh, lord. i have another title for that segment. if it was on cable, i would let you know what it was. >> a lot of inuendo going on. >> it was a fun year. and we all know rob is crazy. >> i liked him licking his lips. >> the moonwalk. >> good dancer, too. >> the man with many talents. when we come back, is kim kardashian about to become a mom? >> the breaking news in "the skinny." you're watching "world news now." ♪ skinny, so skinny >>> skinny is in the house. and kim kardashian has got a baby growing in her house. it's kanye's. >> it is kanye's. >> her rep confirmed
their base. david: their standard bearer in the election was romney, not the tea party. stuart: do you think if a tea party guy has been the republican standard-bearer in 2012, i don't know a name for you, not mitt romney, a tea party guy, do you think that person would have won? david: if he could have drawn the energy from 2010, yes. >> do you think he would have won? >> yes. >> only chance for success in the election and policy. stuart: it just didn't seem like that, did it? a rotten economy and we re-elect a president who is in charge of that are then economy. who could have seen that? i didn't see that coming. >> short-term incentives. you know, it is where the money is in the republican party. it is where the donor base is. the tea party isn't one entity, it is a label given to a movement. stuart: jeff, come join us again as this thing plays out as it will. thank you. >> thank you. stuart: you certainly have fiscal cliff fatigue, got it. so next, my take on foreigners. >> you know, if you're a businessman, how do you decide what you are going to do with your business this year because
this a referendum about his opponent, mitt romney. so if you went out and you asked most americans, do you think barack obama did a great job in his first term? do you want significantly higher taxes? do you want the government to do nothing about spending? are you happy with obamacare? most would say no, but in the end the choice was between a president who said things aren't great, but i'm still going to try to make them better and a guy he painted as not having a plan and not identifying with the average wants and needs of middle class americans and in the end, people decided to stick with the devil they knew rather than the one they didn't. >> paul: so the election, the republican defeat was big, but it wasn't overwhelming in a sense of repudiation, kim, as far as a republican platform and their agenda? >> no, i think the reason, look, this country had the opportunity in this election to once again hand completely controlled government to democrats. everyone in the house was up for reelection and yet, they continued to give republicans, majority there. they liked divided government and i thi
and that is what we need to do. obama and romney can close, they touched on it and that the date and there was common ground they found which my former newspaper at the times dismissed as sort of meaningless, well let's not meaningless if you are going to change the way because people commit gun violence, not the guns themselves, how do you get at the feeder that leads people to resort to guns and troubled neighborhoods in the city's and new york there are communities people's - and fire hydrants were street lamps well, you could do something like that, you could pass a law and impose a kettle heavy penalty. they raised the minimum sentence for having a loaded illegal gun on you to three and a half years i think you could raise it even higher and that might make it clean to people that provide guns illegal to people that might buy them because their names are on that list in washington and in west virginia in the list. >> host: and that is the list that is access when you do a background check. >> guest: criminals get around that by not getting someone else to buy a gun for them.
barack obama should win? >> because he takes good care of us. >> what's wrong with mitt romney? is he mean to animals? i swear, she really did ask me that. four years from now, i'll be back and have to answer these questions and more all over again because i just learned that i'm expecting a new little politico next summer. maybe next time around, alec can explain it to her little brother or sister. >> congratulations. >> thank you. >> so exciting. >> tingles. >> can we go get some beers? >> yeah. happy hour after this, right? >> 30 seconds left. let's name the child right now. >> the intersection of presidential politics and of course baseball. so, as we are in the bottom of the sixth in the election cycle, the game is tight. what about basketball, you say? the next treasury secretary car me lo anthony top paid big star hurt in this dive and had to leave the game. we have a classic for you as we relate to the fiscal whatever here in washington. >> i feel like it's going to be really interesting. >> oh, classic material. i wanted to see -- >> ridiculous. >> the queen of mean when you
as it is now. i think that's what we need to do. obama and romney came close to it. they touched on it i should say. there was one common ground they found, which may form a newspaper, the times dismissed as meaningless. well, it's not meaningless. if you're going to change the way because people commit gun violence, not the guns themselves. i do get the behavior that leads people to resort to guns in troubled neighborhoods of mercedes. a new yorker community cards people townspeople stash and fire hydrants were strictly and. you could do something about that. you could pass a law, for instance, that post a heavy penalty on using a community going. in 2006 race the minimum sentence for having a loaded illegal gun to three and a half years. i think you could rate even higher. that might make it clear to people who provide guns illegally to people who can't buy them because their names are on that list in washington and west virginia, and ics list. >> host: that's the list access when you do a background check. >> guest: right. often criminals get around not thanking somebody else today going for

it goes too far. as to the regulators, i would have been worried if mitt romney had been elected because he would have appointed non- regulators. but i think the people in place under president obama who helped write the law believe in it. the common theme in the bill, as i saw it, was to say to a great extent, people who make decisions that are risky, which should be done in the business community, will not be able to escape the consequences of poor decisions because that way they'll make better ones. >> reporter: failures, regrets. >> yeah. i should have voted for the first iraq war. george bush did that one very well. i'd been skeptical. i was afraid that george bush was going to treat the first iraq war the way his son treated the second. in the housing area, i was late- - along with a lot of other people-- to see the housing bubble, but that didn't affect the actions. >> reporter: so you told me once when i asked you this question that you had a regret about when you came out, i think it was, or your general posture with respect to homosexuality and the timing of it. >> no. i wish i

. it was irresponsible through the election. i think republicans thought that mitt romney could win and they would approach the fiscal cliff differently. democrats obviously hoped the president would win and they could do this at the last minute this is the way washington has operated now but the biggest problem isn't the lack of compromise it isn't the fact that they're doing this at the last minute. that we're still not serious about reforming spending and these entitlement programs. gregg: especially the entitlements. steve hayes, thanks very much. >> thanks, gregg. heather: coming up, big news to report about a celeb couple. i know gregg is waiting for this one. gregg: i'm so cynical about this. heather: kim kardashian and rapper con quite west -- can west getting ready for patter of little feet. gregg: 2012 with minutes taking away before we ring in the new year. thousands packing times square in new york city gearing up for a big party there. ♪ @ ♪ sing polly wolly doodle all the day ♪ ♪ hah @ gregg: the house of representatives is in session right now. they're debating the so-called
